From Coleridge's The Rime of the Ancient Mariner:

O sweeter than the marriage-feast,
     'Tis sweeter far to me,
To walk together to the kirk
     With a goodly company! --

To walk together to the kirk,
     And all together pray,
While each to his great Father bends,
Old men, and babes, and loving friends,
     And youths and maidens gay!
